This fountain is a landmark and has an interesting history that you can read about elsewhere. It's at an intersection where the aqueduct makes a turn. You can view the fountain from the beautifully landscaped Plaza/Jardin de Villalongin. Go across the street to the restaurants...More

Zipped by it twice on the tour bus, will definitely have to go back next trip to truly take great pictures with the Aqueduct in the background.
